My friend I had dinner tonight here tonight and it was horrible. Dinner was late because the cook burnt the first two entrees. When the waitress, who has been there over 40 years, brought the second set of entrees one of them was burnt so bad I couldn't eat it. It was just a simple chicken parmesan. All the cook had to do was not leave it in the deep fryer too long. The waitress made NO effort to check on us after she brought the food and when we complained that my dinner was burnt so bad that it was dried up, she made no offer to bring me something else or take it off our bill. She just brought us the check and cleared our plates. We called after we left and asked to speak to a manager, but we were told there was no manager on duty. Needless to see, we won't ever go back there again. I could have gotten a better meal at McDonalds.

Slowest service we''ve ever experienced at a restaurant. Waited for 10 minutes for someone to take our order. Then 30 minutes later, asked the waitress when our order would be ready. 10 minutes later, we just got up and left. Fortunate for us, none of the waitresses were around or paying attention so we were not stopped. Maybe now that it's been 15 hours later, perhaps our order is finally ready!!!

My dad loved this place for years. Just at the Granite Run Mall, it's in a convenient location, but on a busy thorofare. The atmosphere is comfortable and the American fare food offers a great outing for the family.

The Riddle Ale House has been a place my parents have gone every year for my dad's birthday. I took my mother there this year for her's. The staff was very pleasant, and the restaurant clean. The food was not bad, and the dessert was delicious. It is quiet if you get seated away from the bar, so if you are looking for either type of atmosphere, the Riddle Ale House has it for you.

My husband and I have been to Riddle Ale House a handful of times in the last year and each time is worse than the last. After our last experience, we will not be going back.
The restaurant was recently remodeled and, for awhile anyway, looked very classy and clean and elegant. When we went in the spring and summer of 2008 both the decor/atmosphere and the food was very good and above average for this type of establishment. We went back in the fall and the interior was starting to look dirty and shabby and the food was clearly not as good. We just went back for a final attempt this past weekend and it was horrible. The surfaces were greasy and dirty, the temperature in the "porch" area was so cold that many people left their coats on during their meals, the TV in the "porch" area was hung so low my husband could barely make it out of his seat without hitting his head, the staff seemed clueless, was slow, and would offer no substitutions on side items except cole slaw, it took almost a half hour to get a hamburger when the place was very sparsely filled and when the food finally did come it was mediocre at best. To top it off, the couple at the table next to us found a disgusting clump of grease in their salad.
I used to appreciate this place for its outdoor dining and decent quality, reasonably priced food, but after a couple mediocre visits and this horrible one, Im not wasting my time or money here again.

Pros: outdoor dining, a lot of TVs to watch sports

Cons: dirty, subpar service, mediocre food

This is a nice place they have some of the best food around. They have a dining room and serve drinks with there food. Service is good and polite. They also have a night crowd that comes to hear the live music once a week. Recommended expecially during the day.

PROS: good food at a decent price
CONS: night crowd gets rowdy
